Question First Gaming Computer Build - opinions?

I will be running windows xp most likely.

Here is the list of parts:


Power Supply





Hard Drive

Sound Card

Optical Drive/Burner
This is my first time builing a computer, so let me know if anything doesn't look like it would work or if anyone has any suggestions.

A few quesitons I have are:

1) Does the power supply look sufficient?
2) Does everything look compatible?
4) Does the case seem big enough to house everything comfortably?
3) Is there anything I should add or change?

psu will be fine.

every thing is compatible.

case will be fine.

the ram you have is a bit "meh" - OCZ Reaper HPC 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

it's a little bit more expensive but it is worth it.


The only thing ATi can render faster than nVidia is the BSOD


<<< i like rep :D

^^^ I agree on everything.
